Sample Review: Bremenn Upper Eyelid Lifter

Last week Saturday when Mai and I went to Teddy Bear World Hawaii, we stopped in the new Sephora in Waikiki. There are 3 Sephora stores on Oahu and they don't all carry the same products. (The one that is closest to me is probably the smallest store so they don't carry items that the other two stores might.) It was in the Waikiki store that I saw a product that I hadn't seen before. It is the Bremenn Upper Eyelid Lifter.

The unique thing about this eye cream is that it is for your upper eyelids. All other eye creams are for under your eyes and isn't recommended that you apply onto your eyelids. According to Sephora's website, this is an eyelid cream that is supposed to make your eyes look bigger, brighter and fresher. This cream was formulated to address deflated, drooping lids for a more wide-awake look.

This sounds perfect for my needs as I have sagging, droopy, crepey eyelids. The SA gave me a generous sample of this eye cream. I've been using it twice a day since I received it 7 days ago. To date, I don't think that I have experienced my eyes looking bigger and brighter. Nor do I think that it has lifted any. However, I think--not completely sure--that my eyelids are less crepey and seem to be firmer. I think that I have enough of the sample to last me at least a couple of weeks more. I'll continue using it and will decide when I run out if it's working and if I'll actually purchase a tube.

It's so hard to figure out if things are working or not yes? I find it hard. Sometimes I'll try an anti-wrinkle cream and think - yes - this is working! The next week I look as hideous as ever. It is hard!

When I saw a derm he told me that it takes 3 months for new skin to develop... given that samples only last 3 weeks - how are you supposed to tell really? I reckon if you think it is making a difference - to keep going. Can't hurt right?

Toodles + thanks for this!

Generous samples are always nice! I hope this works out for you, it sounds like it may be doing something. I always have trouble noticing if things work right away it usually takes me a few weeks or months if I notice lol.

@BV--Yes, it is difficult to tell most of the time. It's quite rare when a product WOWS me within a few times of usage.

@Nic Nic--I agree that finding the right skincare products that will work well is so difficult. Plus it doesn't help that your skin goes through changes, there are weather changes, etc. and you need to adjust your skin care products accordingly.

@gyc--I'll certainly keep using it and will update.

@Brianna--I have trouble noticing if things are working for me. Sometimes initially I think that it's working but after using for an extended period, it actually isn't working, or it stopped working.
